I have lost count of how many times I’ve tried to create a nice comfy reading nook for David but nothing ever seemed appealing. He would read because he was made to read and always negotiating how many pages first. We’ve bought comics, adventures, in English, in Spanish, in Catalan… we’ve tried endless things. Surely two readers would also produce a reader. So far the only thing that has really worked is the football press. He will read anything and everything about Barcelona Football Club.
Recently he’s been caught in bed eyeing a picture book with a little reading… and then came today.
Today I am a happy mama because this shot is 100% unposed. He propped Jumbo Ted up against the window, chose his book and blanket to get cosy and decided that we all had to sit and read our books. With his permission I was allowed to take a few shots because this I simply had to document.
The book Geronimo Stilton and the language Catalan. I’ll take it.
And just a little note to say Yipeeeeeeeeeeeee Barça made us proud last night. a 1-3 win against Madrid. That’s as good as it gets!
